Letter from the Director

Welcome to the 2016-17 round of the NLSY79 survey! Although you have been participating in the NLSY79 for 35+ years, this is the first time that I am greeting you. You see, last year I became the new director of the NLS program and while I had been part of the research staff at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for over a decade, my current position has been my first opportunity to be a part of the important work of the NLS program.
